I love this helmet!

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by beansbaxter, Nov 8, 2004.

  1. Ok, ok, I'm not one to druel over all the cool helmets out there. I hardly ever give any the time of day, let alone a gander. I have a few extra helmets that go along with my HJC and Shoei TZ-1 and I'm happy. I figured I wouldn't buy another helmet till the Snell 2005 ratings came out. But then I saw this helmet in one of the new UK mags and I fell in love. I really, really like this helmet...whatcha'll think?

    dude. i'd be happy with an x-11 even if it had pink flowers and kittens on it. that model helmet is nice.

    (tested one out at a local dealer)...

  4. I JUST BOUGHT IT...hopefully I'll have it before Laguna!!! I've been eyeing this helmet for a long long time. Finally though...I am so happy to get this.

    I recently found out this is the same helmet that the KTM MotoGP rider Byrne wears. Here is a pic of it:

    Oh ok cool glad to hear...Even with the price I showed thats a huge mark up. With friends I think the price is like 4 something....

    Have you tried the suomy helmets.....btw did you know the mark up for their helmets is $200 and I am not even shitting you
     
  14. yeah I actually love Suomy helmets, but their helmets are all undersized. I wear an XL in Shoei, a XXL in HJC, but have to try on a Suomy that fits. I tried on an XL Suomy and it was way too small. I know they go up to XXXL but have yet to try that on.

    This Shoei I've been wanting since Shoei released their 2005 lineup last year, time to jump on it. It is their flagship helmet model line, and the graphics are just siiiick!
     
  15. I talked to my buddy who owns a shop in Tri-Cities...he looked up my Arai Corsair helmet, retail was something like $700.00 or something SUPER outrageous, and his cost........$300.00!!! Now thats some markup!
     
  16. Huh, must have been Screwmate!

    Byrne got his first point with WCM at Laguna, apparently a milestone for them. i think he came in 15th there, right?
     
  18. this is true. ktm needs to get on the bandwagon, quick.

    it amazes me the crazy hooligan riding that byrne did in europe only to goto the Big Show!

    I've been really happy with my OGK, it even came with a tear off. This helmet is very light, great venting, Snell and DOT rated.
